Welcome to Slash-Addict.net!

    Hello and welcome.  This site has emerged from a desire to have my various scifi interests collected in one place.  These interests include the Space Empires series of games, as well as the TV & Film franchises of Star Trek, Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, Babylon 5, Stargate, Farscape & Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda.  I occassionally read fanfic stories from these franchises.  I've always been particularly interested in the possibilities presented by crossover fics that bring two or more of these franchises together.  If done properly, I feel that such stories can be enormously enjoyable, as they allow for some very unique interactions between both characters & civilizations.  Sadly, I've often found myself reading rather poorly written crossover fics.  Therefore, a few of the sections on this site will include helpful info for fanfic writers - suggestions on what to do & what not to do when writing a crossover.
    An interest of mine in and of itself, and yet also tied to fanfic, is the 'Starship Size Comparison Chart'.  While the sizes of some scifi ships can only be estimated and/or guessed at, I've encountered some figures(both specific & relative measurements) in fics that are so far from reason as to be laughable.  To an extent, inaccuracies come with the territory of scifi.  But, if an author gets something severely wrong -or lots of things a little bit wrong- it can have a serious negative impact on the enjoyment of a story.
    Look around, check the site out.  Feel free to sign up on the forums.  Leave comments on the current content, or add your own.  Fics posted on the forums will be included in the fanfic archive when I get around to it.  Enjoy!
